Jarrell Miller has a problem. Unfortunately, he continues to show that he is not a changed man, like he wants to claim.
On Saturday, he failed yet another drug test. This is his FIFTH failed drug test since 2014. Yet, Top Rank and other boxing organizations continue to give this man a job.
Miller — who is nicknamed “Big Baby” — was supposed to fight Jerry Forrest on ESPN on July 9th. However, due to this failed drug test, the fight has been canceled.
Forrest may get another opponent on a short notice. Or Top Rank may give him time off until an opponent can be found.
According to Top Rank, Miller will be suspended on Monday by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
Miller — who resides in Brooklyn, New York — is 23-0-1 in his boxing career. He has knocked out 20 of his 23 opponents.
Miller has not competed in the ring since November 2018. He defeated Bogdan Dinu by knockout at the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Kansas.
This bout was for the interim NABA Heavyweight title.
Last summer, Miller was supposed to have his biggest fight of his career. He was supposed to fight Anthony Joshua in his United States debut at Madison Square Garden in New York, New York.
However, due to another previous drug test, Miller was pulled from the headlining fight. He was replaced by Andy Ruiz Jr., who went on to defeat Joshua to win the belt last summer.
With these suspensions, who knows what is going to happen to his career next. At this time, it’s unclear if Nevada will hit him with a light suspension or a potential year suspension.
But what we do know, it’s going to be tough for Miller to keep finding employment if he’s going to keep failing drug tests.
